I spend a long time wondering how to paint them. I wanted Manfred to be blood red, but I didnt know how to make him interesting to look at. So I asked a good friend of mine, Tue (Yes, the Tue) and he tolled me: paint him green.... well, that was not what I expected, since I had just tolled him I wanted to paint him REALLY red.
Anyway, we finally got around to actually do the painting and a year later (yes... a year!) here it is. I brought it to Monte San Savino 2016 and it was the only thing I entered. The absolutely best piece I have ever done, much thx to Tue.
I hope you can see the point of the green. I am for one very happy with the result and it has opened my eyes to many more possibilities. Cheers.
While I am at it. Shout out to Tues new project with fellow painters Bo, Torben and Kristian. Takke a look HERE
